Peter Barber's Adventurously Eccentric London Architecture

7 December, 2018 - 07:00

London architecture today, for all the big-hitters that dominate the headlines (Foster, Rogers, Heatherwick), finds its richness in small studios. Peter Barber leads one such studio, where for the past 30 years he has led the development of some of the city’s most sensitive housing and housing developments.

Among these are McGrath Road, a small development in Stratford, East London that reworks the traditional back-to-back housing model for a local council. The typology, prominent in the 19th century but unpopular in later years due to its lack of a garden, is a perfect fit for senior housing. In Barber’s scheme, the tightly packed homes are gathered around a shared courtyard, allowing residents to move smoothly between public and private space in the development.

The International VELUX Award 2018 sought to highlight the work of architecture students around the globe who challenge the use of daylight in built environments. The award, titled “Light of Tomorrow,” was launched in 2004 and is awarded biennially for creative interpretation, exploration, and investigation of daylight in built environments. This year, the winners were selected from over 600 submissions.

The project winner in the category of “Daylight in Buildings” studied the traditional construction of contemporary buildings, their geometries, and their window placement to isolate the limitations of these contractions and propose new methods of building that maximize the natural light penetration and shadow play. The submission, titled “Light Forms Juggler,” is by Anastasia Maslova from Kazan State University of Architecture and Engineering in Russia.

Text description provided by the architects. Ninh Binh is a small, peaceful city, located 100km to the south of Hanoi – the capital of Vietnam. Most of the new urban houses here are designed and built in the old-fashioned French mansion style, which was carelessly copied from colonial-style villas in Vietnam in the past. Redundant of pretentious and lavish decoration from the outside, but lacking green and open spaces, those buildings take no account of quality space for human life inside.

Daily City: London Architect Drafts 365 Urban Plans, 1 Day & Design at a Time

6 December, 2018 - 20:00
[ By WebUrbanist in Art & Drawing & Digital. ]

A London architect has is working to sketch a new city each day, mining his imagination and experience for fresh ideas for a full year, a practice inspired in part by the failures of modern urban planning.

Peter Barber is sharing the results of his work online, driven by an architectural theorist.”The idea arose from Lewis Mumford’s assertion that modernism has ‘failed to produce even a rough draft for a decent neighbourhood’, and from a pub remark made by my friend and colleague Ben Stringer, who said that you ought to be able to design a city in 10 minutes” — or at least: the idea for one.
